    I think you must wait for the official windows 8 release since it still in Beta fase, and Alfa (or any device builder) can't develop drivers for OS's on Beta testing

    I noticed this is a major issue with device manufacturers (cough Ralink, cough Realtek), they are always behind, developing 64bit and latest OS drivers. Highly annoying indeed.

    alternative from Alfa would be G-Sky they both use the same chip sets
    i have been looking at this Sabrent NT-H802N high power usb adapter @ Wally world cost is very good
    but even going to Sabrent web site they only give info of what it can do
    nothing about if it can do packet injections or chip set they use i thought that was odd ?
